A bit of a slog through Burgess Hill to start with but once you hit the countryside, it’s a lovely route....
Really direct and scenic. Good under foot even after rain. Will defo use this route again....
The route starts off from behind the exclusive Ockenden Manor hotel and skirts the western fringes of Cuckfield, through woods and small fields to reach Whitemans Green. It is always a surprise when you cross the River Ouse to think that such a wide valley has been carved out by such a small river. Heading out of Balcombe again, the route descends into another valley and around the end of a small lake over a boardwalk. This is a walk which pays back the effort, revealing typical High Weald scenery; woodland, small fields, steep valleys and plenty of mud when it is wet....
Haywards Heath to Crawley via Cuckfield 29/10/2021 Leg One - CUCHAY Two. This is a route which is justifiably already snailed It’s a direct all-weather path with some nice views and mostly traffic-free....
Nice route with a good mix of woodland and open spaces. A few road sections without pavement, but these were fairly quiet. Fortunately not much mud today (late September) - only one section and it was easy to walk around....
The route links Cuckfield to Haywards Heath with the majority of the route on pavements on averagely busy roads. From Cuckfield, the walk goes through a churchyard through a gate and along a slightly gravelly private road. The route through Blunts Wood is on a tarmac path with streetlights....
As previous reviewer said, some sections had very long grass/overgrown foliage and there were some very muddy sections even in July....
This follows some lovely paths through wooded High Weald scenery....
An off road route which passes through some attractive woods and offers some views south to Downs....
Mark Songi added Cuchay three, a new walk from Cuckfield to Haywards HeathWalk this route
The route is more direct yet still mostly off main roads....
I usually take the more direct route Cuchay two, which is also a better route for cyclists between these locations....
This route is easier to follow than Cuchay 2....
The short section along South Street, Cuckfield uses narrow or non-existent pavements but can be easily avoided by taking the path due south through the churchyard from Church Street....
The middle section between Wheatsheaf Lane and Blunts Wood provides attractive views and a short woodland section lit with streetlights after dark....

At the Cuckfield end I would suggest cutting down Church Street directly to the Church rather than going out to Church Platt and Church Street. This will shorten the route by several hundred yards....
